Equality and Diversity at St Basils: A statement for young people

Diversity of young people

It is our intention to do our very best for each young person who comes to see us, ensuring that the service St Basils offers is fair, inclusive, appropriate and relevant for each individual. 

We offer a fully inclusive service and are here for all young people aged 16-25 who need us, regardless of ethnicity, gender/ transgender, pregnancy or maternity status, marital or civil partnership status, sexual orientation, disability or religion.

We also work with ex-offenders, young people with substance or alcohol issues and young people with mental health problems. Across all our locations, we work closely in partnership with other local charities who may be able to offer further specialist support. 


Accessing our services? 


We offer a personalised and tailored approach in all we do and therefore when accessing our services we need you to be as open as possible about what led to your current circumstances and what your current needs are so that the best possible service and support can be provided to you. 

Accessing our services will involve an assessment process which will look at a number of areas in an effort to establish your support needs. As a result, we will be discussing things such as your health, education and employment, family relationships, and legal issues. 

The outcome of the assessment will determine what type of support we will put in place. We must assess each young person’s separate circumstances, so what you are offered may differ to others.
